Description

DERIVATIVES OF PYRROLOIMIDAZOLE OR ANALOGUES THEREOF WHICH ARE USEFUL FOR

THE TREATMENT OF INTER ALIA CANCER

This application claims the benefit of Indian provisional applications IN 201621003596 filed on 02nd February 2016 and IN 201621024110 filed on 14th July 2016 which are hereby incorporated in their entirety.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

Present invention relates to novel pharmaceutical compounds that are inhibitors of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and/or tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO). The invention further relates to preparation of these novel compounds and method of treatment for conditions related to tryptophan degradation using the compounds of the invention.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) are tryptophan degrading enzymes that catalyze the first step in tryptophan catabolism independently in the kynurenine pathway (KP). The catabolism in turn results in depletion of tryptophan levels and formation of KP metabolites which modulates the activity of the mammalian immune, reproductive, and central nervous systems. Tryptophan (Trp) is an essential amino acid in humans as it has to be obtained through diet as body do not biosynthesize it and most of the dietary Trp being metabolized through the kynurenine pathway. Trp is also required for bio-synthesis of proteins, neurotransmitters like serotonin, melatonin and Vitamin B3 (Niacin). Excessive activation of the kynurenine pathway not only causes depletion of Trp levels but also give rise to production Kynurenine based metabolites and thereby causing suppression of T cell proliferation. In addition, the production of metabolites can provide a source of nicotinamide dinucleotide (NAD+) and have other biological effects, particularly in the immune, reproductive, and central nervous systems. (Ball HJ et al, Front Immunol. 2014; 5: Article 485)

Though both IDO & TDO catalyze oxidative cleavage of tryptophan to N'- formylkynurenine, they differ from each other in many aspects. IDO is a monomer, which is distributed ubiquitously in extrahepatic tissues particularly in lung, small intestine & placenta. There are two major subtypes of IDO (IDOl & ID02). Sequence analysis indicates that for humans and mice, IDOl and ID02 proteins possess 43% homology and that the residues required for tryptophan catalytic activity are highly conserved (Ball HJ, et al. Gene 2007; 396(1 ):203-213). It's important to note, however, that IDOl possesses a higher affinity for L-tryptophan, when compared to ID02 (Yuasa HJ, et al. Comp Biochem Physiol B. 2009; 153(2):137-144). On the other hand TDO is a tetramer, located extensively in liver & placenta. Structural studies of IDO versus TDO show that conserved Argl l7 and Tyrl l3 are found both in TDO and IDO which presents active site environments, however, His55 in TDO is replaced by Serl67b in IDO. (Thackray, S. et al., Biochem Society Transaction. 2008; pp. 36, 1120-1123). Till date, KP appears to be implicated in a variety of diseases and disorders, including immune system disorders, Cancer, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), dementia complex, alzheimer's disease (AD), huntington's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), schizophrenia, psychiatric disorders, depressive disorders and neoplasias. Numerous studies have measured the levels of tryptophan and kynurenines under those conditions. Significant imbalances in Trp and its metabolites were frequently observed, which when brought back within normal ranges, often resulted in alleviation of symptoms.

The Trp catabolism is a central pathway maintaining the immunosuppressive microenvironment in many types of cancers. A relationship between cancer and elevated Trp catabolism was recognized in the early 1950s by analyzing the urine of bladder cancer patients (Boyland E. Biochem J. 1995; 60:v. Annual General Meeting). The classic concept proposes that tumor cells or myeloid cells in the tumor microenvironment or draining lymph nodes express high levels of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDOl) which leads to tumour escape from immunologically mediated rejection. Recently, it has been found that tumor cells and possibly specialized myeloid cells may express and catabolize Trp via TDO instead of or in addition to IDOl. A survey of cancer cell lines indicates that 16% of tumor cell lines are IDOl positive, while 19% are TDO positive and 15% express both TDO and IDOl (Pilotte L et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA., 2012; 109:2497-2502). These observations suggest that targeting TDO may complement IDOl inhibition. Thus, TDO may represent an additional target for cancer immunotherapy. Remarkably, IDOl inhibitors available to date do not cross-inhibit TDO and vice-versa, probably due to low sequence homology of these two enzymes despite similar enzymatic properties (Platten M et al., Front Immunol, 2015; 5: Article 673).

Many small molecules like 1 -methyl-tryptophan & its derivatives, natural product derivatives like epigallocatechin gallate, brassilexin, coumaric acid are used in medicament as IDO inhibitor. WO 2007/054348 describes 'Novel Medicaments' and WO 2010/008427 describes 'Tryptophan Catabolism in Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis'. Both these references talks about use of natural product derivatives in the treatment of disorders related to tryptophan catabolism pathway.

Application number WO 2006/122150 describes 'Modulators Of Indoleamine 2,3- Dioxygenase And Methods Of Using The Same', WO 2014/150677 describes 'Inhibitors Of Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenase (IDO)', WO 2014/186035 describes 'Inhibitors Of The Kynurenine Pathway', WO 2014/159248 describes 'Tricyclic Compounds As Inhibitors Of Immunosuppression Mediated By Tryptophan Metabolization', WO 2012/142237 describes 'Fused Imidazole Derivatives Useful As IDO Inhibitors', WO 2011/056652 describes 'Imidazole Derivatives As IDO Inhibitors', US 2016/0075711 describes 'Compounds For The Inhibition Of Indoleamine-2,3-Dioxygenase', US 5,428,160 describes 'Substituted imidazo[5-a]pyridine derivatives and other substituted bicyclic derivatives', US 6,420,057 describes 'Organic electroluminescent element' and JPH 0971586 describes 'New Bicyclic Condensed Imidazole Derivative' .

In view of the world wide epidemic level of cancer, there is a strong continued need for new effective drugs for treatment of cancer such as by discovering new IDO and /or TDO inhibitor compounds with novel structures.

The present invention includes novel compounds that are inhibitors of IDO and/or TDO, methods for preparing the novel compounds, pharmaceutical compositions comprising the novel compounds, methods for using the novel compounds and a novel approach to identify promising compounds that can be potential IDO and/or TDO inhibitors. The compounds of the invention herein will help to meet the need to develop potential inhibitors of IDO and/or TDO. Considering the role of IDO & TDO in many clinical manifestations like cancer, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), dementia, Alzheimer's disease (AD), schizophrenia, Huntington's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis etc. compounds of the present invention will prove beneficial for the treatment of these diseases.
